So far so Good

It's been a great start to the season so far for the Minnesota Marauders who are
leading the division by 1 game over the Inferno.  They've been a huge surprise to
the entire league & also to the pundits who had them penciled in at 4th place in
the division. You can call them road warriors where they have gone 12-2 compared
to only 9-4 at home. Fans that gave up on the franchise before GM Rouse took over
are coming back to see this young team ball. Rouse spoke...


"It's still early in the season so nothing has been accomplished at all. We have
53 games on the schedule & if the team relaxes now we'll drop fast in the uber
talented National Conference. Head Coach Dallas Todd deserves a lot of the credit
by changing up the offense to run run run."

The Marauders lead the league in ppg at 110 while shooting almost 40% from 3
which also is tops in the league. Last season the team was in the bottom 3 so a
giant improvement to say the least. SG Andrew Lawler is hitting a scorching 53%
which is higher than his FG% at 51%. He's having a breakout year to say the least
& we should see him at All-Star weekend where he'll most likely be in the 3 point
contest.

Rookie PG Francis Ellender has been a great addition filling a major hole &
excelling so far this young season. He's already collected 2 Rookie of the Month
awards and more are expected throughout the season. He's averaging
14ppg/7.4apg/4rpb & his early season struggles shooting the ball seems to be over
with. He leads the team playing nearly 40mpg so will he break down later in the
season?

Almost everyone on the team is shooting a career high so a lot of that credit
goes to Coach & his up tempo offense. Hopefully this will last but with a young
team you just don't know if they'll keep up the consistency that you need
throughout an entire season. Now the new year brings higher expectations and
we'll find out if their the real deal or a flash in the pan.
